Google+ Pages get updated

The update is a spring clean for Google+ Pages, ensuring that individuals, companies and brands get the best experience and keep engaged and entertained by the content that gets posted.

Larger Cover Photos

The cover photo of your Google+ Page now requires higher resolution image which sits across the top of the page. The profile image is smaller and condensed into a circle that is positioned on the right hand side. This gives the Page a more developed brand presence and allows room for a call to action as well as additional creative concepts. A tie-in that brings Google+ Pages closer to Facebook Pages.

Updated About Tab

People, stories, communities, contact information are all laid out in a graphically pleasing and easy-to-access manner.

Local Reviews Tabs

In addition to your photos, +1?s and YouTube videos, there’s now a place for all your Local reviews. You can highlight your favourite restaurants, or hide the tab completely via settings. This is only for personal pages, but may drive awareness of reviews and ratings for local businesses if users begin to leverage these highlighting features.
